    The fronts are easy if you managed the rears by hand

    went at the ball joint today and made a balls of it as i didnt have a press and tried a few different things... end result, joint is 80% in and i am getting a new one tomorrow and bringing it to a friend who has a press lol
    rocker cover also done, less said about that the better :mad: grease is a great help with this seeing as the german design is stupid imo...
